Supreme Court to hear petitions on the process of appointment of election commissioners on November 17

A constitution bench on Thursday fixed November 17 for hearing petitions seeking an “independent mechanism for appointment of election commissioners” outside the exclusive power of the government.

The petitions were referred to a constitution bench despite objections raised by the Center that the appointment of election commissioners (ECs) to the apex election body was “deliberate and willful” a part of the executive function of the state.

The Center had argued that the appointment process under the aegis of the government had previously been given to eminent persons, including TN Seshan, a slang for independence.

Senior advocate Gopal Sankaranarayanan, appearing for petitioner Ashwini Upadhyay, submitted that the Election Commission should have an independent secretariat for the appointment process and their emoluments should be drawn from the Consolidated Fund of India.
